Re: Anchoring in lake weeds

A Danforth is probably about the worst since it has so much surface area for the weight. Beyond the anchor, a really important consideration is the technique. You want to not be moving at all so the anchor and chain can work down through the weed without picking up too much of the vegetation. If you are moving in any direction the anchor gets clogged with week before it even has a change to find the bottom.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
